Press Release Summary: Ertelecom CJSC, a leading ISP in the Russian city of Penza
starts delivering Dr.Web information security services to its customers.

Press Release Body: The number of Internet threats is huge and hundreds of new
viruses emerge every day. Most customers of the provider don\'t have licenced
security software installed on their computers, those who actually have amount to 5%
only of the total number of customers. Meanwhile it s a home PC without a
protection from intrusion which is turned into a zombie machine by Trojan
programmes and becomes the most efficient tool to spread malware all over the World
Wide Web.

\"Nowadays many users are not computer-educated. Being a provider-company, we are
committed to provide reliable protection of information stored on computers of our
customers. Ertelecom CJSC under the \"Dom.ru\" brand name has become the first ISP
in Penza that delivers such a service to its customers thus protecting our users
from viral threats. All subscribers of Dom.ru may use the anti-virus protection
service by Doctor Web, Ltd. free of charge for two months. After that a customer is
free to get a paid subscription at an extremely low price of 59 rubles (about 2.45
USD) per month\" - says Peter Buzin, Ertelecom CJSC executive officer.

Dr.Web anti-virus service is delivered to all customers of Dom.ru who subscribe to
the service free of charge starting on 01.25.2008 until 03.25.2008. During this
period every customer may subscribe to the service in his or her private area.
After an activation one will be sent a download link to Dr.Web installer. The
executable file will install the application and establish a connection with an
anti-virus server of Ertelecom CJSC so the Dr.Web agent (installed on the customer
PC) will receive virus database and programme modules updates. The agent will be
monitoring all file related operations, scan RAM and boot sectors and filter mail
messages for viruses and spam. The monthly fee includes updating virus databases and
programme modules.

Using the new service has many unquestionable benefits:
. subscribers do not spend time searching for a solution to protect their computers
from viruses;
. a service fee is included in a provider bill which also saves time;
. unlike a box product the service duration options are from 1 up to 36 months. A
customer can invest in anti-virus protection more efficiently and suspend the
service if away on vacation or on a long business trip.

The new service makes the broadband Internet connection provided by Ertelecom CJSC
safe and free of viruses and spam. Starting from March 26, 2008 a monthly
subscription fee for protection from viruses and Spam will amount to 59 rubles
(about 2.45 USD) for all sbuscribers of Dom.ru, which is much cheaper than buying a
box anti-virus.
